Staining your concrete patio to look like tile.

I was so pleased with the DIY project on our back patio! I stained the concrete to look like tile. We used painter's tape to create the look of grout lines, and we used a concrete stain from Lowe's to stain the concrete. For a step by step tutorial, just click on the link below.

  • Is there a lot of maintenance? What about water stains? Does it wear well in the sun?

    Also looks great when you use Concrete Revive and use a stencil. www.gulfsynthetics.com
